Forget Google…

I want a job at Applied Minds:

Co-founder Danny Hillis escorts me down a hallway that dead-ends into an old-fashioned red phone booth. The phone rings. He places receiver to ear.

“The blue moon jumps over the purple sky,” he says, and hangs up.

Suddenly, the booth becomes a door, swinging out to reveal a vast, open room filled with engineers, gadgets and big ideas.

It’s as if Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory just yawned wide to welcome us. Only here, all the candy plugs in.

“This is where the secret laboratories are,” Hillis says.
